Hyperbola Lab

Instructions: 1.Start with a circle with given radius (I used 3) and a point outside the circle. These two points are the foci. 2. Create a point on the circle, using "point on object", then draw a line through the center of the circle and the point on the circle. 3. Construct a segment from the point on the circle to the foci outside the circle. Then add in the midpoint of that segment. 4. Create a perpendicular line for that segment through the midpoint. 5. Construct the intersection point where the perpendicular line touches the first line. 6. Trace the intersection point and animate the point on the circle. 7. Now you have a hyperbola!
